I had to wrap up the course but one thing not clear in the assignment is how far you should take that CPU design so I basically did 90% of the assignment and ended up having a passing grade.

Congrats on getting it done in a reasonable time. I consider that very reasonable.

I had a bad dream about the assignment. It was really, really long in the dream.

I feel better since you managed in about 12 hours, so thank you for updating. However, I may not try to finish before my current Study.com membership ends. Too much other stuff came up.
Working on TESU BA CompSci/English, but may not graduate until Sept, Dec, or later.
TESU BSBA (with ASNSM) in March 2018.
First Masters complete. Slowly working on a second Masters but may start a different program.

Final grade was 80.

I used 2 Operands

I did this style of assembly:
ADD A, B

The assembly part was actually not that hard for me.


@Ideas, depending on your grade on the exam and how far you want to take this, you can reasonably expect to pass without putting too much time on implementing the CPU itself. Do Phase 1 and 2 (mostly the ALU, there are a lot of tutorials on ALU design on youtube), do the state diagrams, do the assembly code. This should be enough to pass the course.

I went further than that, it deepened my understanding, but I'm still not at the point where I can implement the full 8bit CPU.

@posabsolute I used the same! Was just curious...

@ideas and others wanting to do the course, there is a great resource on youtube, that eill help everything maybe its just cause I like electronics, but I found this a few years sgo and was trying so hard to find it to mention here:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL...5dvjafglHU

The guy builds a CPU from logic chips and a 555. Its ingenious. I ordered the chips I was missing from Aliexpress and followed with him a few years ago! It cemented stuff in me that I wont ever unlearn and deepened my understanding so much.

You dont have to buy the chips and follow but the explanation and visualizations of CPU internals is unmatched.

Hope this helps someone somewhere! No only if I could remember what I did with my project....

Armstrong/Posabsolute, thanks for the info. I am working on these as we speak... I just started and was switching back and forth between three course assignments thinking which one would be best to work on. I'll keep these in mind, thank you again for the feedback and info here.
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Working on: TESU BA Computer Science (June 2019 graduation...)
Deferred: **Deciding on several Masters/PHD programs**
